[0030] In the embodiments, a first number of spacers is arranged at a preset position of the first magnet and the first number of spacers is arranged at a preset position of the second magnet, and the spacers are non-magnetic. Therefore, the original first magnet/the original second magnet is/are segregated by spacers into a plurality of magnetic blocks; the adjacent magnetic blocks have opposite magnetic properties; when the first main body is connected to the second main body, in accordance with the principle of that the opposite magnetic blocks mutually attract, more magnetic blocks increase the mutual attraction further bettering the attraction between the first and second main bodies, so the structure between the first and second main bodies becomes more stable, promoting the user's experience.

[0031] To fully understand the features and technical content in the embodiments, the following section elaborates the embodiments in combination with the attached drawings; meanwhile, the attached drawings are only used for reference but not used to restrict the embodiments.

[0032] Refer to FIG. 1. FIG. 1 shows the assembly diagram of the electronic device comprising: a first main body 11, a second main body 12; the first magnet 13 is arranged at the first end of the first main body 11 and the second magnet 14 is arranged at the second end of the second main body 12; the first magnet 13 has the magnetic property opposite that of the second magnet 14; the first main body 11 is detachably connected to the second main body 12 through the interaction between the first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14.

[0033] In this instance, the electronic device is a detachable appliance generally comprising two main bodies of the first main body 11 and the second main body 12, wherein the first main body 11 is a keyboard (KB) and the second main body 12 is a tablet PC. Without a doubt, depending on varied embodiments of the electronic device, the first main body 11 and the second main body 12 can be further taken as other components; for instance, the first main body 11 and the second main body 12 both are tablet PCs while the electronic device comprises two tablet PCs; in the embodiment mode, the two tablet PCs of the electronic device can be spliced for combined use or separately used.

[0034] In this instance, the first magnet 13 is arranged at a first end of the first main body 11 and the second magnet 14 is arranged at a second end of the second main body 12. The first end and the second end are the connecting ends, that is, when the first main body 11 is connected to the second main body 12, the first end of the first main body 11 is connected to the second end of the second main body 12. To connect the first end of the first main body 11 with the second end of the second main body 12, the first magnet 13 is arranged at the first end of the first main body 11 and the second magnet 14 is arranged at the second end of the second main body 12 for this instance.

[0035] Specifically, the first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14 can produce the magnetic field, with the feature of attracting ferromagnetic substances such as iron, nickel, cobalt and the like. The first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14 have the polarities; taking the first magnet 13 for instance, the two ends of the bar are the poles with the opposite magnetic properties wherein one is the North pole and the other the South pole, provided that the first magnet 13 is a bar. The North pole has the magnetic property opposite of the South pole. The like magnets repel but the opposite magnets attract among the magnets.

[0036] Based on this point, the position of the first magnet 13 shall be corresponding to that of the second magnet 14, while the North pole of the first magnet 13 shall adapt to the South pole position of the second magnet 14 and so shall the South pole of the first magnet 13 to the North pole position of the second magnet 14. Therefore, when the first magnet 13 contacts the second magnet 14, it will produce the attraction leading to connection between the first main body 11 and the second main body 12. When the user wants to detach the first main body 11 from the second main body 12, the user shall pull away the first main body 11 from the second main body 12 with a force equal to or more than the attraction.

[0037] In this instance, as the first magnet 13 is installed at the first end of the first main body 11, the number of the first magnets used can be two or more but not only one. Accordingly, the number of the second magnets 14 can be two or more at the second end of the second main body. Only if the positions of the first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14 have a certain corresponding relation leading to the opposite magnetic properties of the first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14, the first magnet 13 contacting the second magnet 14 produces mutual attraction.

[0038] For application, the mutual attraction between the keyboard and the tablet PC shall reach 2. 8 kgm/s.sup.2 so as to shape a stable connection structure. At present, the magnet at the KB-PC connection just reaches the mutual attraction of 2. 3-2. 4 kgm/s.sup.2, with the magnet model of N52. To realize the mutual attraction between the keyboard and the tablet PC of 2. 8 kgm/s.sup.2, the embodiments take more spacers made of aluminum or non-magnetic materials between the magnets; after the use of additional spacers, the mutual attraction between magnets can go up to 2. 8 kgm/s.sup.2.

[0039] Referring to FIG. 2, FIG. 2 shows the assembly diagram of the electronic device in the embodiments. The electronic device comprises: the first main body 11, the second main body 12; the first magnet 13 is arranged at the first end of the first main body 11 and the second magnet 14 is arranged at the second end of the second main body 12; the first magnet 13 has the magnetic property opposite that of the second magnet 14; the first main body 11 is pluggably connected to the second main body 12 through the interaction between the first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14.

[0040] In this instance, the electronic device is a detachable appliance generally comprising two main bodies of the first main body 11 and the second main body 12. The first main body 11 is a keyboard and the second main body 12 is a tablet PC. Depending on varied embodiments of the electronic device, the first main body 11 and the second main body 12 can be further taken as other components. For instance, the first main body 11 and the second main body 12 both are tablet PCs while the electronic device comprises two tablet PCs; in the embodiment mode, the two tablet PCs of the electronic device can be spliced for combined use or separately used.

[0041] In this instance, the first end of the first main body 11 is equipped with the first magnet 13 and the second end of the second main body 12 described is equipped with a second magnet 14. The first end and the second end are connections, that is, when the first main body 11 is connected to the second main body 12, the first end of the first main body 11 is connected to the second end of the second main body 12. To connect the first end of the first main body 11 with the second end of the second main body 12, the first magnet 13 is arranged at the first end of the first main body 11 and the second magnet 14 is arranged at the second end of the second main body 12 for this instance.

[0042] Specifically, the first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14 can produce the magnetic field, with the feature of attracting ferromagnetic substances such as iron, nickel, cobalt and the like. The first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14 have the polarities. Taking the first magnet 13 for instance, the two ends of the bar are the poles with the opposite magnetic properties wherein one is the North pole and the other the South pole, provided that the first magnet 13 is a bar. The North pole has the magnetic property opposite of the South pole. The like magnets repel but the opposite magnets attract among the magnets.

[0043] Based on this point, the position of the first magnet 13 shall be corresponding to that of the second magnet 14, while the North pole of the first magnet 13 shall adapt to the South pole position of the second magnet 14 and so shall the South pole of the first magnet 13 to the North pole position of the second magnet 14. Therefore, when the first magnet 13 contacts the second magnet 14, it will produce the attraction leading to connection between the first main body 11 and the second main body 12. When the user wants to detach the first main body 11 from the second main body 12, the user shall pull away the first main body 11 from the second main body 12 with a force equal to or more than the attraction.

[0044] In this instance, as the first magnet 13 is installed at the first end of the first main body 11, the number of the first magnets used can be two or more but not only one. Accordingly, the number of the second magnets 14 can be two or more at the second end of the second main body. Only if the positions of the first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14 have a certain corresponding relation leading to the opposite magnetic properties of the first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14, the first magnet 13 contacting the second magnet 14 produces mutual attraction.

[0045] In this instance, the first magnet 13 comprises one or more magnetic blocks and the second magnet 14 comprises one or more magnetic blocks. For instance, the first magnet 13 comprises three magnetic blocks, composed of three magnetic blocks, wherein each magnetic block is an independent magnet. In other words, each magnetic block comprises the North and South poles; the three magnetic blocks are spliced together with the North poles connected to the South poles of the adjacent magnetic blocks so as to shape the big block of the first magnet 13. For the first magnet 13 on the whole, the first magnet 13 has one North pole and one South pole. Similarly, the second magnet 14 comprises three magnetic blocks, composed of three magnetic blocks, wherein each magnetic block is an independent magnet. In other words, each magnetic block comprises the North and South poles. The three magnetic blocks are spliced together with the North poles connected to the South poles of the adjacent magnetic blocks so as to shape the big block of the second magnet 14. For the second magnet 14 as a whole, the second magnet 14 has one North pole and one South pole.

[0046] In this instance, the first number of spacers is arranged at the preset position of the first magnet 13 and the first number of spacers is arranged at the preset position of the second magnet 14, while the spacers are non-magnetic. As the spacers are non-magnetic, the magnets on the both sides of the spacer have the opposite magnetic properties.

[0047] Specifically, referring to FIG. 3, FIG. 3 shows the diagram of the magnetic blocks segregated by spacers in the embodiments. The first magnet 13 is segregated by three spacers into four independent magnetic blocks which has one North pole and one South pole. As the first magnet is segregated, the number of its magnetic poles increases to improve the mutual attraction between the magnets.

[0048] In an implementation mode, the spacers are arranged in the middle of any two magnetic blocks for one or more blocks of the first magnet; and the spacers are arranged in the middle of any two magnetic blocks for one or more blocks of the second magnet. The arrangement is easy to fabricate and realize.

[0049] Referring to FIG. 4, FIG. 4 shows the diagram of two magnetic blocks segregated by a spacer in the embodiments. The first magnet 13 is segregated by three spacers as is the second magnet 14, while the spacer positions have the corresponding relation; the first magnet 13 is segregated by three spacers into 4 independent blocks with its own North and South poles per block. Accordingly, after the first magnet 13 mutually contacts the second magnet 14, the mutual attraction between the North and South poles results in firm connection between the first magnet 13 and the second magnet 14 under attraction; meanwhile, due to an increase in the number of magnetic poles, the attraction is further enhanced so that the connection structure is more stable.

[0050] To realize the electronic device herein, the embodiments further provide a manufacturing method of connectors applied in the electronic device, the electronic device comprising: the first main body, the second main body; the first magnet being arranged at the first end of the first main body and the second magnet being arranged at the second end of the second main body; the first magnet having the magnetic property opposite that of the second magnet; the first main body being detachably connected to the second main body through the interaction between the first magnet and the second magnet.

[0051] Referring to FIG. 5, FIG. 5 shows the process diagram of the connector manufacturing method in the embodiments of the present invention; as shown in FIG. 5, the connector manufacturing method includes the following steps.

[0052] In step 501, a first number of spacers is arranged at a preset position of the first magnet. In the embodiments, the spacers are non-magnetic. In step 502, the first number of spacers is arranged at a preset position of the second magnet.

[0053] In the embodiments, the spacers are non-magnetic.

[0054] In an embodiment, the manufacturing method further comprises: the position of spacers in the first magnet are arranged to have a corresponding relation with the position of spacers in the second magnet.

[0055] In an embodiment, the manufacturing method further comprises: the magnets on both sides of the spacers are arranged to have opposite magnetic properties.

[0056] In an embodiment, the manufacturing method further comprises: arranging one or more magnetic blocks on the first magnet and arranging one or more magnetic blocks on the second magnet.

[0058] Those skilled in the art shall understand that the connector manufacturing method shown in FIG. 5 can be comprehended with the relevant description of the foregoing electronic device for reference.

[0059] The technical solutions in the embodiments can be combined in the case of no conflicts.

[0060] The embodiments are only schematic. For example: a plurality of units or components can be combined or integrated into another system, or certain characteristics can be omitted or not exercised. Additionally, coupling, direct coupling, or communication connections among the component parts as shown or discussed may be implemented through some interface(s), and indirect coupling or communication connections of devices or units may be in an electrical, mechanical, or other form.
